George sold me my rental 20 years ago and when it came time for me to sell, I contacted him naturally as he is very professional in the way he operates. A friendly, pleasant person who made the entire process of selling stress free. Property sold within two days, and I was more than happy with the way George looked after me.

George was fantastic and kept us really well informed throughout the entire sale process. George has exceptional knowledge of the property market and was able to make our whole sale process very stress free. George went above and beyond to make sure of an efficient sale and was always looking out for our best interests. I would be more than happy to use George’s services again at any time.

George and his team are exceptional. They came as a recommendation from a friend, and they exceeded expectations. George was really helpful in arranging everything we needed to prepare the house for market efficiently. He and his team have great market awareness and can communicate their knowledge and recommendations clearly and effectively. I felt like it was a partnership through the whole process that yielded a prompt and successful outcome for all involved. Thanks George and team!

Seller - November 2022

George handled the sale of my mum's much loved family home. In a difficult falling market we achieved an outstanding price. Throughout the process, George and his team treated all parties with great courtesy and respect. Experience does count and his skill to create a positive environment is largely responsible for our success. At all times, we were fully consulted and informed. George proved his worth from start to finish. He and his team are warm, friendly, and thoroughly professional.

George and his team have been wonderful to deal with! As a solicitor I have dealt with George in numerous buying and selling transactions. He has also acted for my family in multiple property development sales with huge success. George’s knowledge of the market, attention to detail, professionalism, marketing, and negotiation skills are first rate. He has a very well-resourced team and always responds very promptly to any requests. I highly recommend George & the First National Newcastle team.
